Hodgdon® Announces New Upgraded Reloading Data Center

Shawnee Kansas, February 2014. Hodgdon® has upgraded the performance and look of its free on-line reloading data resource. Already the most comprehensive free on-line searchable and sort-able listing of reloading data available, this easier to use upgrade now puts the Reloading data Center (RDC) at your fingertips on your smart-phone or tablet. In addition to reload data, the new RDC is also your source for reloading tips, tricks, and how to information.

“It has been seven years since Hodgdon revolutionized reload data availability with the Reloading Data Center” said Chris Hodgdon. “This upgrade makes it easy to look up data on your cell phone, which is very handy on the range or sitting at your reloading bench.” Chris also explained that the RDC is now your source for learning about reloading as well as finding reload data – a complete reloading source.
